BG: I actually frapped with little Gracie the day before she left... She was so silly! She was inspecting Sadie’s little pool (about 4 ft. around with about 2 inches of water in the bottom) and she suddenly jumped in. Mom turned when she heard this big splash and saw a poor, bewildered looking Gracie peering over the edge.
She jumped back out and then went “cracker dog” as Mango says. (Speaking of which, Mango's not been feeling up to par and could use some prayer...) Gracie frapped (Frantically Running And Playing) all over the front yard for a good 5 minutes or more. She was one MUDDY PUPPY!!! Mom was laughing so hard she started coughing, and it was so silly that Dott, Gimli, Mercy and finally even I joined in with the frapping!
Gracie left to go to her new forever home on Sunday. I think I even miss the little tike… Our next blog will be about our trip to Ojai to take her there.
Dott: And here are the 9 week old pics and statistics for my puppies:
Gimli is getting so big! He weighs a little over 10 lbs. now. You can see how big he is beside me… Grammy calls him her "Handsome Little Man..."
Mercy is 9 lbs. now. She has got a bit of a temper and Grammy has had to get after her for not letting the other puppies eat at the same dish. She has to do a time out while the others get to eat for a minute or two…
And, little Pippin is up to almost 8 lbs. He still acts like he is Mr. Big Stuff and gives as good as he gets in the puppy tussles! In the picture below, you can see how small he still is...
